Real Housewives of New Jersey fans learned the sad news that Giacinto Gorga, the father of Teresa Giudice and Joe Gorga, passed away on April 3. It was clear that Giacinto, known as “Nonno,” had struggled with health issues recently. Both Melissa Gorga, and Teresa had asked fans to pray for the beloved patriarch of the Gorga family.
Nonno was a part of RHONJ from the very beginning. Nonno loved being in the kitchen. He could boil an octopus like nobody’s business, and I loved seeing him cook with his granddaughters. Ever since the death of Nonno’s wife, Antonia, Nonno had been living with Teresa and her four daughters. He was a huge part of their lives, and a support during Joe Giudice’s incarceration and deportation woes.
Teresa Giudice and Joe Gorga’s father has become such a lovable character on Real Housewives of New Jersey. Giacinto Gorga, better known as “Nonno,” has been living with Teresa and her four daughters ever since his wife passed away.
We have seen him at family events, giving Teresa advice, and even giving us some comic relief at times.
As we all know the cameras were rolling when Teresa Giudice went to Italy with her four daughters to visit estranged husband Joe Giudice. None of that footage has surfaced yet and there’s no word on when it will air. It would be kind of awkward to show this before Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 10 concludes. But at the same time, the anticipation is high to see Joe and Teresa’s in-person dynamic.
While we wait on the video footage, there are plenty of photos to click through. Now that Joe has joined social media, he was really on his game during the visit. Teresa, on the other hand, dialed down her social media presence, which isn’t a great sign for anyone pulling through for them to resurrect their
If only Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Joe Giudice had worked half as hard making an honest living as he has with trying to stay in the U.S., he wouldn’t even be in this predicament.
Ever since he was found guilty of fraud back in 2014, Joe has been faced with the possibility of being deported to Italy. And it appears as though Joe’s time in the U.S. is limited.
It’s unclear what sort of internet access Joe Giudice had while he was in prison, but there’s no doubt that his family members have been following along with the news stories while he’s been locked up. His wife Teresa Giudice has been photographed holding hands with Blake Schreck, a man in his twenties.
She also said on the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion that she would divorce Joe if he gets deported. Not only that, but her own social media posts aren’t doing the RHONJ star any favors. Of course, she doesn’t post photos of every single thing that she does, but sure seems to be out on the town a lot these days.
Safe to say Joe Giudice is on pins and needles today. The husband of Real Housewives of New Jersey
felon star, Teresa Giudice has been in ICE custody since his “release” from prison. Joe and his wife both served camp jail sentences for multiple federal charges, including bankruptcy and mail fraud. The parents of four had their terms split up so their kids would always have one of them at home. Teresa ovaried up and did her time like a champ. After her release, she only had a short time with her husband before his 41-month sentence began.
Joe did his time too, but there was one little problem. His lack of US citizenship. Because Joe never sought the correct paperwork to render him legal, he was immediately up for deportation after camp time was over. Joe has been appealing the deportation order from the get-go. Leaving his family and starting over in another country wasn’t on his agenda. It wasn’t on Teresa’s either. She admitted on the Season 9 RHONJ reunion, she and the girls would not follow Joe if he were sent back to Italy. Now it looks like Juicy Joe could finally get a break. The wait for Joe’s possible release from custody might be putting Teresa on pins and needles too. But it’s for a completely different reason.
At this point, when a Real Housewife joins the show, viewers expect to meet her husband (if she’s married), her kids (if she has some), and her glam squad because, at this point, pretty much every Housewife employs a group of hair stylists and makeup artists that love being on TV. As over the top as that is, it does make some sense that they want to look and feel their best in front of the high definition cameras.
Well, how about their kids? Is it OK for them to get the same treatment for their kids. Recently, Teresa Giudice shared photos of her daughters on their first day of school. And now, the mommy shamers out in full force, hating Teresa for letting Audriana Giudice get her hair done for the first day of fifth grade.
There are some reality TV stars’ kids that we have literally watched grow up throughout the years. It’s crazy to think that Real Housewives of New Jersey viewers saw Teresa Giudice pregnant with Audriana Giudice during the Season 1 reunion. Now, she is a fifth grader. Do you feel old yet? I do. How about this one: Gia Giudice is a freshman in college.
Jersey Shore fans saw Snooki and JWoww go from hard-partying roomies to devoted moms. Now, their kids are in school too. And just like most other moms, reality TV stars took (and shared) photos of their kids’ first day of school.
